Bear-Talk with John C. Reilly

Bears just hit theaters a few days ago, here is more information about the film and also the narator John C. Reilly and talking about his part in the film.

With the release of their latest exciting wilderness documentary, Bears, Disneynature hopes to continue the conversation that Walt Disney started with his highly lauded True-Life Adventure series back in the 1940s. To help tell the story of the brown bear family at the center of the film, Disneynature brought in famous Disney animated character voice John C. Reilly (Wreck-It Ralph), who became something of a bear expert along the way.

We recently had the pleasure of speaking to John about the experience, and his favorite bear-facts from his time on Bears. Take a look at what he had to say:

In an epic story of breathtaking scale, Disneynature’s True Life Adventure “Bears” showcases a year in the life of a bear family as two impressionable young cubs are taught life’s most important lessons. Set against a majestic backdrop teeming with life, their journey begins as winter comes to an end and the bears emerge from hibernation to face the bitter cold. The world outside is exciting—but risky—as the cubs’ playful descent down the mountain carries with it a looming threat of avalanches. As the season changes from spring to summer, the brown bears must work hard to find food— ultimately feasting at a plentiful salmon run—while staying safe from rival male bears and predators, including an ever-present wolf.

Bears is now playing in theaters nationwide. See the film during opening week (April 18-24, 2014) and Disneynature, through the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund, will make a contribution to the National Park Foundation, the official charity of America’s national parks, to protect wildlife and wild places across America’s national park system.
